Do You Have the Bends?



I really enjoyed a recent Image webinar. For so long now I have had the bends….see sample 1 and 3 above. No I don’t go deep sea diving, I go picture taking of large buildings, tall buildings with condos, and I end up with the bends, until last night. I have all these software programs to drag horizontal and vertical lines to straighten my images, but it is too frustrating to stay with them to complete the task. I just want my walls straight….can it be soooooo difficult? Not anymore! Last night I heard the words “Shift N”. I pressed “Shift N” on my keyboard…nothing…nada. So I Googled it and voila! I downloaded the ShiftN program. Ten minutes later I had straightened the earth, straightened out my teenage son, the dog etc. Look at the difference in sample 2 and 4 and all done automatically. Thanks so much!

I have downloaded all the webinar episodes so far. What a wealth of information! I’ve gradually integrated it into my marketing; I did the 12 week SEO course in two hours and I will revisit each week again asap. And all this is free!

I Googled a local Broker, Barbara Kestel recently. I keep her Superlative web site updated with her listings and I do some virtual tours for her. Based on RTV’s SEO course she is listed on the first page 3 or 4 times, with a link to a virtual tour and my website, and I haven’t implemented all of your tips yet! I think this is awesome. I look forward so much now to the webinars, even though the timing isn’t great for me, I make it to most of them.

Again many thanks,

The FORMULA 35 | Effective Product Launching

Are you getting bogged down trying to keep your virtual tour company and customer base updated as technology changes and new technology becomes available? Launching new products and services can be a very challenging thing to coordinate especially if most of your day is eaten up by taking care of operations.

Websites need continual updating. Customers need to be informed. Marketing materials require updating and of course your press releases and blogs are commonplace when making announcements about your company.

The FORMULA 30 – Facebook 101 The Nancy Bain Story

 “No Games” Nancy Bain is coming to The FORMULA 30 so you better have your thinking cap on and your notepad out.  In this episode of The FORMULA Nancy is sharing her story on how she has built up her virtual tour & property marketing business in Nova Scotia where NOBODY had previously used virtual tours. With all odds stacked up against her, no market acceptance for her technology, and little to no experience on social media Nancy took the RTV plunge in late 2009.  

Fast forward to today and Nancy has been nominated by the Nova Scotia Chamber of Commerce for an Entrepreneurial award from the Lunenburg Queens Business Excellence Awards. Nancy teaches social media classes for local real estate agents and has become a master of Facebook marketing.  Finally, and most importantly, Nancy has started booking and shooting virtual tours on a regular basis as a direct result of her seminars. All of this started from her taking the RTV Social Ignition Course!

Please join myself and Nancy Bain on Tuesday June 15th at 7:00 Eastern as we learn how to penetrate a nearly impossible market by giving back to your community and peers by way of information, education and seminars.  Best of all, Facebook marketing is FREE!
